Are your breasts so large that they prevent you from doing many of the activities you enjoy? If yes, and you are ready to do something about it, breast reduction surgery may be the ideal solution for you. A consultation with a plastic surgeon for an assessment, will determine if you are a good candidate for breast reduction.
What is breast reduction surgery?
Breast reduction surgery or reduction mammoplasty is a surgical procedure that makes the breasts smaller and firmer by removing excess skin and tissue. During the procedure the nipple/areola complex may also need to be relocated to a higher position.
Am I a candidate for breast reduction?
Overly large breasts can cause a range of physical issues such as chronic pain in the shoulders, neck, and back, as well as grooves in the shoulders because the bra straps grind into the skin. If you are experiencing some or all of these symptoms, you are likely a good candidate for breast reduction.
Candidates for breast reduction surgery must be in good health, and not have any pre-existing medical condition. They should also have realistic expectations about the procedure.
Benefits of breast reduction
Breast reduction relieves the physical symptoms associated with the extra weight of large breasts, and also resolves issues such as rashes beneath the breasts. In addition, women with very big breasts tend to have chronic fit problems, but after breast reduction they typically have an easier time finding clothes that are the perfect fit.
